Crew Needs

We are always looking for people to become involved with our productions as:

  • assistant costumers

Artistic Collaborations

The Ithaca Shakespeare Company is committed to providing a serious and collegial creative opportunity to as many local artists, theatrical and otherwise, as possible.

We are very interested in developing collaborations with musicians and visual artists in the area. Some possibilities include:

For musicians:

  • providing live pre-show and intermission musical entertainment
  • working closely with the director to provide live music as part of the production itself
  • we are particularly interested in string and brass instruments and drums/percussion, but will be happy to consider other possibilities as well

For visual artists:

  • working with the set designer to contribute to the visual design of the production
  • setting up a display of your work near the entrance to the performance site

Our most recent summer season had a total attendance of over 4,000 people, averaging over 300 per night with as many as 600 at some performances. Attendance has increased every year since the program began. So we can help provide a significant amount of exposure for artists who want to work with us.

If you are interested in exploring these possibilities further, please contact us.
